While Rohit Sharma has made many big records in his name as the captain of the Indian team, in this match such a shameful record has been added to him in which he has become the first captain of Team India to score a duck in a T20 International match. But he returned to the pavilion after being run out. Rohit had run to take a run on the second ball of his innings after playing a shot at mid-off, but at the other end, his teammate Shubman Gill did not go beyond his crease to see the ball and the fielder hit the ball straight to the wicketkeeper. The pass was thrown and Rohit was run out. After getting out, Rohit Sharma looked very disappointed and expressed his anger on Gill and walked towards the pavilion.
